CONTENTS
Ladies and Gentlemen,
In this latest publication on Polish documentaries, animations
and short feature films, we present a selection of films produced
in recent months. Many of these have had a successful festival
run, often winning top prizes at major film events around
the world.
Documentary films have long been the face of Polish cinema.
Some of our filmmakers have enjoyed tremendous success in
recent months; Aneta Kopacz’s Joanna and Tomasz Śliwiński’s
Nasza klątwa (Our Curse) were both nominated for the Oscars in
the Best Documentary – Short Subject category. Other Polish
films have also been noticed at key film events around the world,
winning awards at Amsterdam’s IDFA, Toronto’s Hot Docs, in
Locarno, and at Sundance. In 2014 alone, Polish documentary
films received a total of almost 70 film awards at international
film festivals.
Polish filmmakers who focus on animation and short feature
films have also proven to be among the world’s leading talents.
In 2014, their films had a total of almost 340 festival screenings
abroad, including film festivals in Berlin, Cannes, and Annecy.
Polish animation artists received a total of 64 awards. The end of
the year brought a nomination for the European Film Award in
the short film category for Wojciech Sobczyk and his Lato 2014
(Summer 2014). Short feature films from Poland screened at 138
international film festivals, winning a total of 48 awards.
The POLISH: Documentaries, Shorts & Animations 2015
catalogue also features some of the latest productions yet to be
released. I have no doubt that some of these will bring about
emotions and gain the acclaim of international audiences. Polish
films certainly deserve your attention.

DE LA CRITIQUE – PREMIO SRG SSR
A documentary inspired by the theory of ‘six
degrees of separation,’ according to which we are
connected to every single person on the planet by
no more than six interpersonal relations. To test
this theory, the filmmakers selected two people
at random: Martyna, a punk rock singer from
Warsaw, and Marco Antonio, a farmer from a
village in Mexico. Then they set out on a journey
in search of the links that connect these two.

Eugeniusz Rudnik revolutionized the concept of
music using a pair of scissors and some audio
tape. Member of the legendary Polish Radio
Experimental Studio, Rudnik discovered the value
of broken, rejected sounds long before the age of
the DJ. 15 Corners of the World is an attempt at
hearing his music with our eyes.

A film based on the memoirs of Marek Edelman, one of
the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, written
down near the end of his life by Paula Sawicka.
“Why does no one ask me whether there was love in
the ghetto? Why is no one interested in that? Someone
should make a film about love in the ghetto. It was love
that allowed us to thrive,” says Marek Edelman in his
book “And There Was Love in the Ghetto.” Now Marek
Edelman’s wish has become reality.

Four Polish prison inmates are transported to the
premiere of a stage play they’ve written based on
their lives. On their way to the theatre, the
authors worry about how their dramatic and
often shocking stories will be received by the
audience and whether the viewers understand
their message from prison — the result of
reflection after years of isolation.

Early 21st-century Poland. We observe the lives of
people who believe they are possessed by Satan.
We join them in a world of demons and
exorcists – a group with rapidly increasing ranks,
much like the number of believers who find
themselves in need of ‘liberation.’ Psychiatrists,
priests and experts in religion studies help us get
to the bottom of this phenomenon.

A blind marathon runner proves, on a daily basis,
that anything is possible. He has run over 100
marathons in complete darkness. But in order to
run, Rysiek always needs to have a guide with
him. For the past few years, this has been Felek.
Hours spent training together bring the two
closer together. Buddies is a story about running,
about friendship, and about the ability to enjoy
the little things in life.

Casa Blanca is a small fishing village in Havana
Harbour. The film focuses on 76-year-old Nelsa
and her 37-year-old son Vladimir, who suffers
from Down Syndrome. Vladimir serves as
the caretaker of the ill Nelsa. Nelsa acts as
guardian to Vladimir, who gets into trouble easily.
Their life is a constant conflict: she tries to control
her son, while he prefers to spend his time with
the local fishermen.

Marianna is an attractive 40-year-old woman.
We slowly enter her life in order to understand
the decision she once made: leaving the people
she loved. She sued her parents, because that
was the only way to change the wording of her
birth certificate.
And the point of all this was to undergo a sex
change and finally truly be herself.

An intimate documentary in which several stories
intertwine over the course of one night. On this
night, not unlike most other nights, people in a big
city – tired of being lonely – just want to talk to
someone. Some call an ambulance (often without
just cause), others call in to a radio show where
the radio host asks questions about the end of
the world and what it means for each of us.
The radio serves as the binding agent of the film
and the source of key questions being asked.

the development of a strong punk movement in
Wrocław – the result of a protest against the lack
of independent thinking and surrounding bleak
reality. Richly illustrated with archive footage,
this documentary tells the story of the difficult
daily existence of the punk subculture in

An extraordinary documentary about the family
life of Wojciech Zamecznik (1923-1967) –
architect, production designer, and acclaimed
poster artist. The film consists exclusively of
archive footage shot by the artist himself, since
he loved filming the life of his family, social
gatherings, and trips with friends.
The film is not only a unique look at the everyday
life of an artist, but also a rare opportunity to
catch a glimpse of the reality of communist
Poland in the 1950s.

An industrialist who got the Czech factories up and running
and a movie star who played the role of a lifetime as Goebbels’
mistress. A man who put Stalin on a pedestal and another,
who toppled him. A writer who always lied, except when
writing fiction. A boy who tried to set the country on fire.
Five pieces, five unique stories, five original takes on
the history of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic.

the past 30 years he has been building his
exceptional home. The place has by now become
a tourist attraction; people come from all over to

The story of Jan, who lives in a decrepit wooden
mansion on the outskirts of Łódź. He once lived
here with his wife and numerous pets; today, his
only roommates are two dogs and a mouse.
There’s not much going on in his life – only
the daily walks with his dogs bring a bit of colour
into his bleak everyday existence. But Jan has
a dream. He would like to see the sea at least
once in his life.

A story about the life of Jonasz Kofta in
communist Poland. About how he would find
little pockets of freedom in the system and
the price he paid for it. About his constant
journey, his success and drama, his moments of
rebellion against oppression and those in which
he accepted his fate. A story of the disease he
fought and defeated, and his unexpected death
that came much too soon. But also a story about
the joy of life, humour, and good spirit.

Jerzy Kukuczka died tragically on October 24, 1989
during an expedition to Lhotse. This was his first trip to
the Himalayas with money, with good equipment, and as
a real celebrity. But Paweł Wysoczański’s documentary
does not focus on the mystery of Kukuczka’s death. It is
the portrait of a man climbing to the top – both literally
and figuratively. From a zero to a hero, from a communist
worker to a star of international media, from a man
climbing mountains with neither funding nor equipment
to Reinhold Messner’s number one rival in reaching
the Crown of the Himalayas.
Interviews with friends and family, archive footage,
photographs, recordings, excerpts from television shows
and interviews are brought together in this documentary
to create a portrait of the whole mountain climbing
community of the 1980s. It is also a portrait of their
time – a time that was as difficult as it was colourful;
a time when ideals were valued more than fame.

In the summer of 1986, several dozen alpinists
from all over the world met to climb K2, the
second-highest mountain on the planet. The
season, later dubbed ‘the black summer,’ brought
a series of tragic events, leaving 13 climbers dead.
Almost 30 years later, the director of the film,
along with an international group of now grownup children of those unfortunate climbers, sets
out on an expedition to reach the K2 base camp
— the symbolic burial place for those who lost
their lives on the mountain.
For years, Zenon Andryjewicz has been running
a circus school for children in Lviv. He is starting to
think about retirement. He believes that
everything good in life is already in the past. He
wants to leave his protégés with more than old

Anca Damian’s latest film focuses on
the remarkable Adam Jacek Winkler. He was
a true individualist; he believed that his guileless
and eager personality was not unlike that of
Koziołek Matołek from the Polish classic
children’s comic book. With his firm beliefs in
the anti-communist resistance movement, he
emigrated from Poland in 1965, settling in Paris,
where he became an active fighter against
communism. Upon learning of the Soviet invasion
of Afghanistan, he joined the Afghan forces and
fought under Ahmad Shah Massoud.

Raised on a farm in the heart of Iceland, two
brothers are portrayed as they face their daily
routines. They lead different lives – the older
brother lives in the city far away from the valley
that used to be his home, the younger is a farmer,
living at the family farm with his wife and son.
Their story becomes a lyrical journey, during
which the characters address important
questions about belonging, being homesick, and
finding one’s place in the world.

Observation of the ever-changing phenomena in
this world never stops at ‘The Place’ –
the highest-elevated work station in Poland,
located on a symbolically immovable rock. This is
the central point, the highest point, one that
offers a different perspective and changes our
view of reality. According to quantum physics
theory, even the act of observing reality is
capable of altering it.
With regards to the observed alterable space,
the protagonists’ story gains a deeper dimension.

When Rita and Robert Jurotich, an American
couple, showed up at the orphanage in Przesieka
near Szklarska Poręba in the summer of 1997,
they caused quite a commotion. Especially since
they decided to adopt five siblings: 14-year-old
Oktawia, 12-year-old Sylwek, 11-year-old
Andrzej, 6-year-old Artur, and 4-year-old Kasia.
Not long after returning to the States,
their dreams of an idyllic life crashed and burned
when faced with the brutal everyday reality.
The film is an account of the dramatic story of
the siblings over the course of 15 years.

Khatchik, a blind shepherd, lives in the high
mountains of Armenia. Against all odds, he
managed to start a family and now lead a quiet
life, taking his goat herd out into the steep
mountain pastures every morning, where he
moves around with no outside help. When his
only son also loses his eyesight and has to travel
to Yerevan to study at a school for the blind,
Khatchik is faced with a difficult dilemma: should
he carry on with his shepherd’s life or move to
the city to be closer to his son? Khatchik is
convinced that blindness is a curse that haunts
his family; a curse that can only be lifted by
a pious life in the mountains.

A film about preparations for launching a snail
farm and the training sessions organized by
industry guru Grzegorz Skalmowski (also known
as the “Snail King”) and about the farm itself.
But the real subjects of the film are
the conversations about life and death, love and
friendship, and about how to survive in today’s
world; conversations the protagonists have with
one another during filming.
A portrait of five people who revisit the events of
their childhood. Deportation, losing their loved
ones, disease, fear, and hunger – that is their
shared experience of the Second World War.
A story of memory, identity, and broken family
ties. The film’s protagonists now live in Russia,
Israel, England, and Poland. For years, they either
tried to reconnect with their close ones or tried to
forget.

A film about Jeph Jerman, an Arizona-based musician,
experimenter, and sound enthusiast. Jeph’s passion is
discovering the world through sounds. He has immersed
himself in listening to the sounds we usually ignore. For
instance, do we ever notice the sound of rocks knocking
against each other, or the rustle of leaves in the wind?
Jeph sometimes records these sounds, manipulates
them, and composes into musical pieces. He makes
whole symphonies using nothing but ambient sounds.
Composing music out of the sounds of nature and
listening to it is his way of life. The Sound of Nature is
a film about passion that allows us to discover
something extraordinary about the ordinary.
The world’s first documentary film made using binaural
sound technology, which allows the audience to
experience a 3D stereo sound sensation.

A village in Dagestan. A portrait of a woman who
takes a nonconformist stance in the patriarchal
world that surrounds her. Her decision is all
the more daring considering the harsh social
norms based on conservative Islamic law, which
does not favour women. But the woman has
an ace up her sleeve: the stubbornness,
relentlessness and determination she gained
during the times of the Soviet Union, when she

look at a collection that’s never been shown to
a wide audience. Organized in driving rain, this
impressive show took place with no photojournalists
or cameras. On that day, fashion was at the forefront.
Tomasz Ossoliński. Before the Show is the story of
the three-week prep period for the show,
which – much like a stage play – is carefully planned
down to the most minute detail. An hour-long
journey into a world of passion and love of beauty.
As an 18-year-old, Tomasz Ossoliński walked into
the ‘Bytom’ clothing factory, where he would spend
the next few years working on his craft and
discovering his life’s passion: fashion. He is the only
fashion designer to proudly call himself a tailor.

Lech Wałęsa is making a movie about
himself – he lectures the director about what
elements should be or shouldn’t be included in his

Indonesia. For centuries, they lived like fish,
spending most of their time in the water. Badjao
children learn to swim before they learn to walk,
while adults have mastered the difficult art of
free-diving. They are able to walk and hunt on
the bottom of the ocean, holding their breath for
many minutes at a time. But when confronted
with modern civilization, their lives begin to
change rapidly.

Based exclusively on actual archive footage filmed during
the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, this film is an account of
the uprising as seen through the eyes of a US airman and two
young reporters, cameramen for the Bureau of Information
and Propaganda of the Polish Home Army. In their search for
the perfect shots, they become immersed in the fighting and
finally recognize that it is their moral duty to document
the events and preserve the footage at all costs.
Using state-of-the-art colouring and audio reconstruction
technologies, Warsaw Uprising is an unprecedented account
of real wartime drama.

The life of the film’s protagonist is no walk in
the park. From morning till night, her day is filled
with a series of responsibilities, only one of which
is her job at the match factory. She tries to fix
the mistakes of her past; she and her husband
decide to take care of a handicapped girl named
Weronika. Requiring constant sacrifice, their
everyday struggle takes place quietly, far from
grand words and declarations.

13 years ago, Karolina Sobczak – a girl growing
up in an orphanage – played the part of
the depraved friend of the main character in
Robert Gliński’s Cześć, Tereska. In 2003,
a documentary was made about Karolina – by
then a teenage mother – and about her goal to
build a normal home for her newborn child. Ten
years on, we take a look at her everyday struggle
with the hardships of being a single mother.

On a distant planet, a tutor watches his apprentice
go through tests in nanotechnology as she tries to
prove herself worthy of advancement. Having
failed, she demands another chance, but the tutor
only agrees on the condition that she listens to
a story. He begins to lecture her on the dawn of
the Solar System and the qualities that have driven
humans to excel. He finally reveals the true nature
of her test and whether or not she passed.

work. During her run, she falls into a deep hole.
That’s the beginning of her absurd odyssey.
The film serves as a metaphorical commentary to
the changes that resulted from the recent
economic crisis; it is the story of gaining a new
perspective – one that allows us to take a long
hard look at our earlier priorities.

A collection of loosely-connected scenes about
the disintegration of a world that the main
protagonist clings to for dear life. Anna and her
partner have a comfortable life – they have good
jobs, they eat out at fancy restaurants, they have
wild sex, and go jogging in the morning. But their
urban lifestyle and the monotony that seems to

25 years of Polish transformation as seen from bed.
This absurdist tongue-in-cheek parable is the story
of a carpenter who, after the fall of communism,
decides to start his own small business. He starts
with a rollaway bed, from which he sells bric-a-brac
outside his building. Then he turns to making his
own beds, risking a face-off with the mafia,
becoming inebriated with freedom and capitalism,
and paying a high price in his personal life.
Probably the world’s first film shot exclusively
using top shots.

Tomek is a con man, swindling elderly people out
of money. Everything seems to be going according
to plan, when suddenly an old woman exposes
him and locks him in her flat. The crippled old
lady offers the crook a deal: he will get her money
if he pretends to be her grandson in front of a
social worker, who’s coming to see if she is being
cared for by family.

Robert, a 30-year-old yuppie from Norway, wants
to commit suicide. Not sure how to go about it, he
decides that Polish prostitute Janina could be
an excellent source of both knowledge and tools.
What Robert doesn’t expect is that, instead of
the ‘easy way out,’ what he’ll get is a second
chance.

A few hours in the life of a young woman, when
nothing of particular interest really
happens – just the trivial activities of the kind
you perform routinely, without paying them much
attention. What could possibly happen in such
a plain everyday existence? Nothing, really. And
yet, it is the cracks of existence that can often be
most dramatic.

He and She find themselves in a flat that doubles
as a trap. He is hiding from the consequences of
a crime he once committed. She is innocent. She
stays with him, even though she’s free to leave at
any time. All signs from the outside world
suggest impending doom.
A story inspired by the events that took place in
the town of Sanok in January last year.

The story of Hydrops – the king of Aquatia, and his
advisors, who were given the assignment of
creating the heir to the throne. Rivalry and
intrigues concerning the qualities of the future
prince led to the implanting of the matrix of
‘fondness’ for little things. That was the beginning
of the obsession with growing smaller.

Five-year-old Basia is a bit of a character.
She lives in the city with her parents, her two
brothers, her turtle Kajetan, and her teddy bear.
Like all five-year-olds, Basia occasionally runs
into major problems and needs to sort them out.
She discovers that sometimes even the most
difficult questions have simple answers.

In a world of grey tones, where life flows slowly in
all its monotony, the light sketches a subtle story
of unexpectedly blooming feelings. But
sometimes, if you’ve been alone for too long,
the very thought of being with someone could be
dangerous. Will the protagonist manage to free
himself from under the heavy shell that he built
out of fear of the outside world? What will be
the role of the Shadow in all this?
A story about attempting to break out of the cage
of loneliness, about the will to overcome one’s
own weakness in order to open up to new
possibilities, to the world, and to feelings.

A group of school friends is getting ready for

Don’t Lose Your Head – a short animation using
drawing and 2D techniques. A visual story about
how easy it is to lose your head. A white head slowly
rolls towards the centre of a black screen. A single
event triggers an avalanche of subsequent events.
The visual side of the film develops with the story.
Starting with simple compositions, through
a growing number of layouts and increasing density
of forms, up to the final scenes filled with colours
like a kaleidoscope. An overabundance of thoughts,
relations and connections leads to a tragic ending.

A bird in a cage, a toddler in a playpen, two dogs
on either side of a fence. Barriers of various kinds
are a part of our lives from beginning to end.
Everyone deals with them in their own way. Does
it really make sense to separate ourselves from
our neighbours with a wall? The film is
a reflection on the role of ‘fences’ in our
lives – not just the physical ones, but also those
that exist only in our minds.

A shrew named Florentine is out to explore
the world around her. She wonders who owns
the sky, and where do the colours disappear.
A key issue addressed in the second season is
the family relationship. Florentine is no longer
an only child; she is now the big sister to twin
brothers. The series is known for its shrewd
observation of the world and a realistic way of
presenting children’s problems.

After 13 years of silence, Jerzy Kucia returns with
a ruminative and poetic tale, based on
the relationship between image and music.
The film shows the process of searching for
the unique qualities of landscape and liberating
human emotions by calling on events that took
place in the presented scenery.

Gingerbread Heart is the story of how fate always
rewards us for being altruistic and sensitive to
the needs of others. Szymek, a miner’s son, had
a chance to learn this first-hand when he helped
the Old Man, never knowing that he was in fact
the Treasurer, the legendary ghost of the mine.

This adaptation of one of Andersen’s fairy tales tells
the story of a certain piece of gossip – a story that is as
humorous as it is true to life. A topic that has always
been hot, but is ever more so in this age of audiovisual
media, tabloids, and the internet.
A certain story travels by word of mouth, turning into
a ‘tragic’ piece on hens that ‘died’ of love for their rooster.

The film portrays the process of forming

An intriguing story about how the small everyday
choices determine the path our lives take. Gośka
is living simultaneously in two worlds, connected
to one another by a single thread. Her home and
her job are far from each other, which makes it

a mother with that of a woman with
a professional career.

An energetic story about shapes, colours, and
Polynesian ornaments that draws on
the mythology of that region. A variation on
the Polynesian myth of creation. A story of
the first parents and first lovers, immersed in
a multicolour visual and musical impression.

The existing Slavic heritage is but a few
remaining fragmentary myths. In writing this
script, the filmmakers used the comparative
method; Slavic myths should not be perceived as
removed from the wider tradition of the Northern
peoples, both hunter-gathering and agricultural
cultures. The Mother Matrix is a psychedelic
journey through the myth of creation; we observe
its beginnings at the moment of a cosmic
explosion. The repetitive nature of these motives
suggests a constant evolution that repeats its
creations on a larger or smaller scale.

Noodles, the Gate is a story about how it doesn’t pay to
be selfish and how using the work of others to fulfil one’s
own needs will always be punished. A certain Wrocławbased Foreman learns this the hard way, having hidden
in a side alley to eat the delectable noodles his wife
made to sell for profit.

In her subtle animation, Katarzyna Melnyk draws
a portrait of a dog living among people. Its
everyday life is organized according to the order
of the human day, which defines meal time and
training time. By night, when the lights in
the nearby houses go out, the sound-filled forest
comes to life. The dog’s long-suppressed instincts
slowly come to light.
A film about longing for freedom, made using the
traditional drawing technique.

A story about feeling different and
the consequences of resisting this feeling.
The story begins the moment our protagonist
decides to step out of the comfort zone of his
lonely everyday existence and be around people,
in order to have company in the space between
happiness and madness. A slightly surreal
confrontation with the conviction that someone
else’s crayons (even when they’re not for
drawing!) might be better.

Poe and Joe is a tongue-in-cheek story inspired by
Aleksander Fredro’s classic tale of two neighbours of
completely opposite dispositions. A satirical look at

as the driving force of history. Sobczyk’s film
portrays history as a series of repeating plagues
and disasters in which man, trying to find his
place, gets even more lost and stoops even lower.

When ten-year-old Tim starts studying under an expert
magician known as the Master, a true adventure begins.
Magic, wit, riddles, the love of a princess, and competing
with rivals – these are the key themes of a series, in
which wisdom means more than magic spells.
A film based on the “Tim and the Master” comic series
by Tomasz Leśniak and Rafał Skarżycki.

A personal journal, in which the author
incessantly creates his ego. By moving from place
to place, he patiently sets the tone for each day.
The relative order of his reality emerges from
an abundance of dates and hours that – much
like the dots in a children’s colouring book – only
reveal their true shape once connected. Everyday
reality appears to be a tedious process of
constant ‘becoming.’
What a Beautiful Case is a universal and
contemplative story about childhood experience,
coming of age, and other key stages of
the protagonist’s life. An attempt at finding
meaning and order in the mass of individual and
collective human experience.

Having just woken up from a nightmare, the film’s
paranoid protagonist starts hearing strange noise
coming from the flat above.
Intrigued, he starts wondering what might be
going on up there. When it gets quiet, he concludes
that it can’t possibly be anything bad. Or can it?

TRAILER
www.pisf.pl/en/
Aniela and Konstanty are an elderly couple,
leading a quiet life – just the two of them. She
enjoys needlework, while he eagerly works on
a certain invention. Though their everyday
existence seems extremely organized, something
seems to be missing in their lives. The change
brought by Konstanty’s unusual invention allows
them to discover a whole new perspective.
This puppet animation by Bartosz Kędzierski is
a moving tale of loneliness, longing, and
the human connection.
